Makeup Trends - Paris Fashion Week 2017
Paris Fashion Week has just wrapped up showcasing the fashion trends for Fall and Winter 2017/2018..
We saw the disco return with Saint Laurent featuring black threads and disco glitter boots. Dior featured a feminine military style in blue with black leather berets. Chloe played on it's signature romance brand with all things feminine in sheer overlays and a sixties vibe, and Versace brought a mish mash of sports luxe and a splash of colour to the party.
However, we can't go on without talking about our beloved Balmain. Oliver brought the drama to the runway with his ability to fuse materials and textures so seamlessly. The Balmain Fall/Winter 2017/2018 collection was a take on tribal luxe in hues of burnt oranges, burgundy, plumps and blacks. We saw everything from snake skin, to velvet, to studs, to tassels, to leather - but somehow it all just worked. Well done Oliver, well done. Total girl fanning over here.
Let's take a look at the makeup trends from this year's Paris Fall/Winter Fashion Week 2017.
Makeup Trend - Smudged Liner
Smudged liner was a big trend at Paris Fashion Week. Balmain featured dramatic eye makeup with a black smokey eye and a touch of metallic create by makeup artist, Tom Pecheux, whilst Saint Laurent was more subtle in application with more of a high smudged wing, also created by makeup artist Tom Pecheux. Chloe and Alexander Wang also featured smokey smudged liner look.
Makeup Trend - Graphic Eyes
Versace also brought the drama to the party with a bold graphic eye fused with an understated finish to the rest of the look. Chanel also featured a graphic liner with a touch of blue and heavy sixties lower lashes, and Fenty featured a bold graphic eye created by makeup artist Pat McGrath. Valentino added a twist to the classic graphic eye, with a burgundy reverse cats eye, also created by makeup artist Pat McGrath.
Makeup Trends - No Makeup Makeup
Another big trend at Paris and London Fashion Week was no makeup makeup. Dior and Saint Laurent keeping things very understated with the base, sending models out with very little, if not, no foundation at all. Alexander McQueen also kept things simple with a natural makeup look, and Isabel Marant kept her signature fresh makeup look with a touch of blush.
